Grants and Loans

  • The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) is committed to forming partnerships with interested groups and local community organizations to achieve the mutual goal of protecting and enhancing environmental quality in Michigan, for the benefit of current and future generations. This page provides information on the grant and loans administered by EGLE.

    Did you know that a large percentage of EGLE's budget is provided through grants, loans, and other funding mechanisms to support environmental related activity around the State? 

    In Fiscal Years 2019 and 2020 alone, over $500 million was disbursed to local municipalities and other entities. To explore where the awards were disbursed, EGLE has created the Grants and Loans Dashboard. This interactive dashboard provides access to a rich dataset of information. Fiscal Year 2019 and 2020 data is currently available with plans to add additional Fiscal Years so users can search for projects funded in their community and take a look at funding trends. Also available is a Story Map explanation of the Grants and Loans Dashboard.
